India enjoy a 2-0 lead in the five-match cricket One-Day Internationals series, but middle-order batsman Virat Kohli says that the visitors cannot take the West Indies lightly.
Kohli, who scored a match-winning 81 in the second ODI in Port of Spain on Wednesday, said it was good for the team to win two consecutive matches, but making a hat-trick will be tough.
"(The West Indies) have good batsmen in the side and we know we cannot take them lightly. It's good to win two matches in a row, and we truly want to win every match we play but that doesn't happen in cricket all the time," said Kohli, who was adjudged as the Man of the Match.
Kohli said the pitch at the Queen's Park Oval played slightly better.
"It was coming well onto the bat with the new ball. Probably better than the last game, but the old ball was pretty much the same, pretty slow, and it was raining in between, so some patches were wet, so the ball was skidding," he said.
